Smart recycle bin
Pigu, the smart recycle bin
  • This project was done in the design process course in first year

  • Pigu is inspired by a pig that used to roam around Mangalagiri bus stand when we were doing research about waste management in the bus stand.

  • Pigu is a smart recycle bin designed to attract children to dispose of in it.

  • with the proximity sensor, Pigu can detect disposal and say thank you with a built-in speaker.

  • The Idea is to make the disposal into the recycle bin rewarding.

  • Pigu is hungry and he eats wastes.

  • Feed him and he'll thank you.

  • Pigu is also equipped with 2 wheels hidden under his legs so it is easy to move him around in a public building.
